Online - Cultivating Kindness and Compassion in the time of Distancing

with Acharya David Hope

June 30th—July 3rd

Date details +
    Room: Online Via Zoom
    In these difficult months we find ourselves more cut off from others than usual, including loved ones, friends, colleagues, sangha members etc.  Emotions are often heightened under stressful conditions, and we may find ourselves reacting angrily, sadly or with depression to all the bad news of government mishandling, lockdown breaking, riots in USA, etc. etc.
     
    We may feel out heart is in lockdown too.  It is easy to forget our dharma training in the ‘heart practices'.  These are such a valuable antidote to the loss of human interaction we may be experiencing.
     
    This 2-part course will introduce these simple meditations to those new to them, and act as a refresher for those who have received them before.  The first evening will give the overview and get us started in practice.  The second, a few days later, will be a forum to hear how we got on with them at home, and talk over the questions which often arise after practicing on our own.  In this way it is a condensed form of a Bodhicitta Weekend such as we have had in the past.
